Something is fish with this COVID-19. It seems very selective in who it kills. The "C" in C-virus, as they call it, is starting to stand for Communism.

I agree..this virus seems to be selective in who it kills..the older conservative part of the population..I keep wondering about Ruth Bader Ginsburg..she's very old and has been in and out of the hospital..still healthy as a horse..Nancy Polosi..healthy as a horse....and so on...but the conservative baby boomers..those of us that will vote for President Trump...are dying...strange ain't it?

I dont guess Herman will get a funeral with all the pomp and circumstance we've seen of late.
But he isn't worried about that, his homecoming celebration In heaven is probably something to behold!!!!

I wonder if there were underlying conditions too. It is strange how most arent affected by this virus and others are. I cant remember if he was a guest on Fox since diagnosed????
Louie Goumert was and aside from being a little tired he's fine and about to start hydroxychlorequine and zinc. It will be interesting to see if he recovers with no problems.

Cain, a colon cancer survivor, was diagnosed with coronavirus in early July after attending a Trump presidential rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on June 20.
He was an outspoken backer of the president and was named by the campaign as a co-chair of Black Voices for Trump.

The Newsmax contributor and former Godfather’s Pizza CEO posted a photo to his Twitter account from the rally. Cain was shown not wearing a mask and not social distancing in the crowd of thousands.

Here’s just a few of the #BlackVoicesForTrump at tonight’s rally! Having a fantastic time!#TulsaRally2020 #Trumptulsa #TulsaTrumprally #MAGA #Trump2020 #Trump2020Landslide pic.twitter.com/27mUzkg7kL

“There is no way of knowing for sure how or where Mr. Cain contracted the coronavirus, but we do know he is a fighter who has beaten Stage 4 cancer,” a statement from his Twitter account at the time said.
At least eight Trump advance team staffers who attended the Tulsa rally tested positive for coronavirus.
After interacting with several colleagues who later tested positive, all of Trump’s campaign staffers who attended his Tulsa rally were quarantined the following week.
Cain did not meet with the president.

As a cancer survivor, Cain was considered at an increased risk for severe illness from coronavirus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Pundits suggest Trump rally to blame for Herman Cain’s death

'Covid doesn’t care about partisanship,' one person posted

Many rushed to Twitter to suggest President Trump’s Tulsa rally is to blame for Herman Cain’s tragic death on Thursday.

Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate and affable business magnate, died after being hospitalized for coronavirus. He was the co-chairman of Black Voices for Trump and attended the president’s rally in Tulsa without a mask on June 20, prompting critics of the president to quickly politicize his death.

While tributes to Cain poured in, others used the moment to attack Trump, conservatives or both. Stand Up Republic executive director Evan McMullin used the news to refer to Trump rallygoers as a “science denial Trump cult.”

“Herman Cain was hospitalized for coronavirus two weeks after he attended Trump’s Tulsa rally without a face mask. He’s the first senior casualty of the science denial Trump cult. The question is whether even that can wake others up about the dangers of Trump and the virus,” McMullin wrote.
